OK, it was a little hokie, but it was dedicated to nurses, and I thought it was really very sweet.
Only thing that REALLY ticked me off was when the older man said that if the nurse that died had been a man, he would have gotten a silver star for what they did!
Overall, the most positive thing I've seen about nurses in a long time.
And, is the actress that plays Colonel McKensie pregnant??? Sorry, can't remember her name.

I also caught parts of the show. Suspect a producer/writer read Elizabeth Norman's " We Band of Angels" about WWII nurses on Battan.....great read and makes you enthuiastic about nursing again.
Hid morphine and quinine by disquising as makeup (if remember right) knowing that enemy would not be interested in those products. 1 RN to 2000 men....amazing story!
